Tim Horton's Chili Mon, 08/28/06 3:45 PM (permalink)
In the Western New York area, Tim Horton's puts out a great chili along with a fresh hard roll. The chili tastes good as sells like crazy especially during cold weather. Many times, they run out.

In addition, they have some outstanding soups such as broccoli with cheese, chicken noodle and vegetable. All the soups are hearty and filling.

Any morning, you will see lines of cars waiting at the drive thru's there for their coffee.

The above site should provide more information.

    Two things: First, why isn't this in the fast food, franchise, Chains section. Second, for those who are allergic to mushrooms be forewarned that Tim Horton's chili has mushrooms in it.

          They put finely-ground or chopped mushrooms in it, and they don't list it among the ingredients.

              Tim Horton's does not put mushrooms in their chili

              They do, according to the can I saw in the trash container outside the Tim Horton's in New Albany, Ohio.

              By the way, how come you changed your name this time?

                I'll take your word for it, but it must be a very small amount as I do not taste it.
                By the way what the heck are you doing going through trash containers for Tim Horton's chili cans in New Albany, Ohio Michael?

                    I had a bowl of chili at that Tim Horton's some eight years ago. After eating there I became sick, exactly the same way I get sick whenever I have eaten mushrooms. So, I went back a couple of days later and looked in the trash container where I found several institutional size cans of their chili. The list of ingredients included mushrooms. By the way, I notified Tim Horton's management about this. I never received a response.

                      They don't list mushrooms as an ingredient in the restaurant. They are listed on the cans.

                        They list ingredients in the restaurant? Is that a Horton's thing? I don't recall seeing ingredients lists in the few FF places I frequent.

                          While I have not been in a Tim Horton's in a few years, they used to say on their menu boards what they put in their product. For instance, for their turkey bacon club they listed turkey, tomato, bacon, lettuce and honey mustard. For their soups they do the same thing.

                            Interesting. I never would have thought of going to a Canadian doughnut shop for chili. Then again, they're owned by Wendy's, is it the same?

                            In Southern New England, Tim Hortons is mostly clustered in areas with large French Canadian populations. None near me, but if I happen to be passing and I'm hungry I might try a chili dog.

                            BTW - I know I'll get in trouble for this, but my Wife grew up in Arizona. She likes mushrooms in her chili.

                              Tim Horton's is still owned by Wendy's, although there's been talk that it will be put up for sale. The Tim Horton's in Connecticut used to be Bess Eaton stores. Tim Horton's bought Bess Eaton last year. By the way, I don't recall Tim's having any chili dogs -- or any other kind of hotdog.

                                The Tim Horton's I have visited In W V, NY and Ontario were all basically a coffee and Doughnut shop that had expanded into some pretty good deli-sandwiches and other baked goods and Soup/Chili as well. No burgers or Hot Dogs at the ones I have tried. We had some good Veggie-beef soup on a cold morning last Fall.

                                  Ahh, I misread the original post. I guess I'd be less inclined to stop at Tim Horton's just for chili (but I wouldn't rule it out entirely).

                                  Now if there was a DD across the street selling cruller dogs you could dip in the chili...

                                    Tim Horton's sells some pretty good pastries for dippin'. You may be on to something with the dippin idea !
